Author sells & # 39; Jack and the Beanstalk & # 39; house he built on Gold Coast two decades ago after writing three novels based on the famous fairy tale
- Cottage inspired by the classic fairy tale Jack and the Beanstalk goes to the auction
- House was built 20 years ago by author and engineer William Andrew Mudie
- He was inspired after writing a book based on inspiration for the fairy tale
- The house looks like it has been torn from the fairy tale
An enchanting hinterland home inspired by Jack and the Beanstalk and nestled in the highlands outside the Gold Coast has come on the market.
The English author William Andrew Mudie became so obsessed with the fairy tale that he wrote his own book series The Foh Fum Legends, in which he detailed the legends and myths surrounding the story of the popular children.
The cottage is on top of Tamborine Mountain, 39 km west of the Gold Coast in Queensland.
The book inspired Mr. Mudie to build the unique house two decades ago and he and his wife, Lynne, have lived there ever since.

The pair said the property offers views of the Gold Coast in the east and views of the Pacific Ocean above, realestate.com.au reported.
Mr. Mudie said he and his wife were not planning to go down the mountain and were planning to build on the second plot that they own next door.
Harcourts Scenic listing agent Tom Van handles the property and said it offers potential buyers a great opportunity.
& # 39; It is a sign of many subjects as a peculiar cottage, but you get a great story behind it and a fantastic view of the Gold Coast & # 39 ;, he said.
The house was built using 150-year-old Queensland bridges and was designed by Mr. Mudie.
The cottage offers two bedrooms, a bathroom and space for four cars on the plot of 1,439m².
The bathroom also has a stained glass window with a scene from the classic Jack and the Beanstalk story.
